Modern Warfare 2 Patch Breaks PS3 Online Modes

A patch (1.02) was released today for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to fix some trophy issues that some gamers were having with the PlayStation 3. Sadly while it may have fixed those issues it has in the process disabled the online multiplayer for a number of people. So if you connect and see a message box saying ‘Fetching Playlists, Updating Ranks and Unlocks. Connecting to Matchmaking Server Complete’ then it’s likely you won’t be playing online tonight.

Hopefully if they were able to fix the trophy issue so quickly then they should be able to fix this soon as well. Either that or have even more angry gamers flooding their forums.

Update: It turns out that it was merely server issues causing the lack of PSN connection rather than the patch. According to a tweet from Infinity Ward it’s all sorted now though apart from party issues which are to be fixed by a patch on Friday. Hurray!

Modern Warfare 2 Adds Some Steam

For all those PC gamers out there looking forward to some dedicated server action with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it looks like it’s not going to happen. Despite an online petition of over 100,000 signatures, online games will instead be run through Infinity Ward’s own servers. That means a lot less chance to mod games and create custom maps. Sorry people.

Also on this topic is the fact that the game has been teamed up with Valve to allow the game to be automatically updated by connecting to Steam servers, have use of the Steam Cloud for accessing their profile from any PC and also players will be able to unlock 50 Steam Achievements.
